The Lighthouse Church (TLC) Youth Classes are a way for TLC youth to come together and learn important life lessons by discussion and instruction. Proverbs 22:6 says to, “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.”

Of all the crucial life lessons taught by our youth pastor, the most impactful one to me was on Joshua 1:9. As we discussed this verse, we had two major takeaways.

The first takeaway was to be rooted in Christ. This means that we need to have our roots in Christ, so that no matter what storms we face, we will be tightly anchored. At The Lighthouse Church, we are letting our roots grow deeper in Christ.

The second takeaway was that Christians need to be planted in the right soil. This means that we need to surround ourselves with people who will help us in our Christian walk, not people who will hurt us. I honestly believe that The Lighthouse Church, Coppell, TX, is a group of people who are “the right soil.” This message taught to us by our dear youth pastor, has helped me personally to reevaluate myself and grow deeper roots as well as plant myself in better soil so that I may grow in the fruits of the spirit.
